use Pod::Index::Entry; my $entry = Pod::Index::Entry->new( keyword => 'constructors', podname => 'perlobj', line => 42, filename => '/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7/pod/perlobj.pod', context => 'Using POD', ); # trivial accessors my $podname = $entry->podname; my $filename = $entry->filename; my $line = $entry->line; my $context = $entry->context; my $keyword = $entry->keyword; # extract the POD for this entry my $pod = $entry->pod;
This class represents a POD index entry. An entry is defined by the podname/filename, line number, and context. The entry object also has the ability to extract the POD "scope" from the filename.
my $q = Pod::Index::Entry->new(%args);
Create a new search object. Possible arguments are:
These are just simple accessors that return the value of these properties, as given to the constructor.
Extracts the POD for the scope of the entry from $self->filename, beginning at $self->line. For a definition of scope, see Pod::Index. The POD extraction is delegated to the Pod::Index::Extract module.
